Learn more about Zapp:
Raised near eclectic artists and creators and a theatre kid from birth, Zapp’s foray into drag began last century when making your drag was a necessity.
Being a self described trash performer and gutter punk, Zapp has made recycling to runway and unconventional materials a mainstay of their drag character and artistic expression, winning pageants and hearts along the way.
Much like any good costumer or prop master, Zapp knows it’s all in the atheistic and the translation of your concept not the expense of your materials.
Having taken the crown at So You Think You Can Drag Season 2 in 2022 wearing hard front wigs and literal garbage, Sapp believes you should never let your budget be what stops you from expressing your artistry.
Come learn how to spin your shoestring into gold with Zapp Backagain. This is an opportunity NOT to be missed!
